Did this town in Ireland just get the world's largest inflatable water slide?

The world’s largest inflatable waterslide is not where you might expect it to be.


Baysports Hodson Bay is a water park on a lake in the town of Athlone in Ireland. This year they’ve gone that little bit further and introduced what they claim is the biggest waterslide in the world!


The whole water park is made out of inflatables of one shape or another and they are all rather hilariously shaped and look like fun.


No one has yet contested the claim, so it’s presumed that this new inflatable lake monster in the shape of a castle and tower will remain the undisputed king of the slides.
